20th HFSP Awardees Meeting

The first online meeting of HFSP awardees and alumni will be held from 5 to 8 July 2021.



Every year HFSP organises a meeting in one of its member countries to bring together the outstanding scientists who have been awarded our research grants and fellowships. The annual Awardees Meeting offers great opportunities for networking within the HFSP community and over the years has seeded many new collaborations among our awardees. 

The 2021 Awardees Meeting will take place as an online event.  Our first ever entirely virtual meeting will enable us not only to reinvite all awardees from last year but also to invite more HFSP alumni to the event as we will not be limited by space restrictions.

Highlights of the meeting include the award ceremony for the 2021 HFSP Nakasone Award and a talk by special guest speaker Niklas Blomberg, Director of Elixirwho will introduce the HFSP community to Elixir and the newly created Global Biodata Coalition.


The meeting will be hosted on a state-of-the-art interactive platform that provides a unique environment for scientific exchange and offers great opportunities for networking. Some talks will be broadcast live but all sessions will be available on replay so that participants from anywhere in the world can connect at any time.


Instructions to register for the meeting will be sent to all eligible awardees in May.
